30 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY [March 

WARNING AGAINST POLITICAL ACTIVITY BY DEPARTMENT 

EMPLOYEES 

The Bureau is in receipt of the following communication dated March 21, 
1935, from the director of personnel of the Department: 

"It is the policy of the Department that all non-civil-service workers should 
fully observe the restrictions on partisan political activity which apply to em- 
ployees with civil-service status. 

.*-4 " Competitive employees, while retaining the right to vote and to express 
privately their opinions on political subjects, are forbidden to take an active 
part in political management or in political campaigns. This also applies to 
temporary employees, employees on leave of absence with or without pay, sub- 
stitutes, and laborers. Political activity in city, county. State, or national 
elections, whether primary or regular, or in behalf of any party or candidate, or 
any measure to be voted upon, is prohibited." 

MATERIAL FOR OUTSIDE PUBLICATION AND ADDRESSES 

It has come to the attention of the Bureau that all employees apparently are 
not familiar with the administrative regulations which deal with the preparation 
of manuscripts for publication outside the Department or for delivery as ad- 
dresses. Paragraph 604 of the regulations specifies in part that "the manuscript 
in its final form should be submitted to the Chief of Bureau or Bureaus concerned 
before release." Exception is made only in the case of purely local material on 
subjects coming entirely within the scope of the writer's sphere of activity. Such 
material may be released after receiving approval by the official in charge of the 
field station or office. 

The provisions of this regulation should be closely followed by Bureau em- 
ployees, thereby removing the possibility of embarrassment to the Bureau and 
reflection on writers caused by the issuance of material that may not be in harmony 
with official policies and standards of accuracy. The procedure should be looked 
upon more as a matter of precautionary review and as an opportunity to receive 
helpful comments rather than as censorship. The Bureau encourages the prepa- 
ration of articles and addresses on its various lines of work, since such efforts 
commonly result in scientific or other benefits. Employees are requested to 
refer to paragraph 604 of the regulations, and in cases where there is doubt of 
its applicability to a particular manuscript, the proper procedure is to submit it, 
together with a carbon copy, to the Washington office for review and approval. 

FORWARDING PATHOLOGICAL SPECIMENS FOR DIAGNOSIS 

It has been observed that tissue specimens forwarded to Washington for 
diagnosis frequently show considerable post-mortem changes on arrival at the 
laboratory even when properly packed in borax. A histological examination of 
such tissues is quite unsatisfactory and in some cases it is difficult to make a 
definite diagnosis. 

In order to overcome this difficulty, specimens should be prepared and for- 
warded in the following manner: 

Representative specimens of the tissues should be liberally dusted with borax 
and then packed in cheesecloth, which in turn should be well covered with borax. 
Samples should be properly identified. These specimens will serve for the gross 
and bacteriological examination. In addition, representative portions of the 
specimens in question should be forwarded in 15 percent formalin solution and 
these specimens should not be over 1 inch in diameter and approximately one- 
fourth inch in thickness to allow for rapid and thorough fixation of the tissue. 
This will insure these specimens arriving at the laboratory in a suitable condition 
for histological examination. 

A supply of formalin and bottles for shipping specimens will be furnished by 
the Pathological Division on request from inspectors in charge. 

ORGANIC LESIONS IN SWINE CAUSED BY BRUCELLA INFECTION 

The attention of inspectors is directed to an article in the February 1935 issue 
of the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, describing a case 
of Brucella infection in a hog, received at the laboratory of the Pathological Divi- 
sion, which showed well-marked gross pathological changes in the kidney, liver, 
and hepatic lymph gland. This appears to be the f»rst recording of lesions of the 
parenchymatous organs caused b}^ Brucella infection, and further information 



J935] SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS 31 

with regard to the frequency of occurrence of such organic lesions in swine is 
desired. It is requested, therefore, that inspectors at the various slaughtering 
establishments be on the lookout for lesions similar to those described in the case 
referred to and forward specimens from all suspected cases to the Bureau's 
Pathological Division, Washington, D. C, for laboratory studies. 

NEW PUBLICATIONS OF THE BUREAU 

[The Bureau keeps no mailing list for sending publications to individual employees but sends copies to 
offleors in charge of stations and offices. These publications should be regarded as notification copies. So 
far as possible additional copies will be furnished on request.]
